Since the inception of agricultural plastic in the 1950's, the agricultural community has come to realize the performance and yield benefits of polyethylene mulch film. Bloomer Plastic Inc.'s mulch and agricultural films are designed to withstand the elements, providing an effective vapor and UV barrier and controlling weed growth.
The concept of covering the soil around the crops with various organic matter has been around for ages. The progression into polyethylene film has increased yields due to the drastically improved moisture retention, weed control, and temperature management. Polyethylene's impermeability halts the direct evaporation of precious moisture in the soil.
Color plays a key role in the performance of the plastic mulch films. Dependant upon the crop, color, and climate it can increase the crop yields dramatically. Please refer to the link below for an in-depth study of the benefits of plastic mulch films:
